"America's fate was sealed
when the public and the anti-war movement bought the government's
9/11 conspiracy theory. The government's account of 9/11 is contradicted
by much evidence. Nevertheless, this defining event of our time,
which has launched the U.S. on interminable wars of aggression
and a domestic police state, is a taboo topic for investigation
in the media."

"As a journalist, if you
produce dissenting reports, there are many ways to get you back
in line quickly. If you don't follow the guidelines, you will
not keep your job long. This system works pretty well, and it
reflects established power structures.
The point is that journalists wouldn't be there unless they had
already demonstrated that nobody has to tell them what to write
because they are going say the right thing. If they had started
off at the Metro desk, or something, and had pursued the wrong
kind of stories, they never would have made it to the positions
where they can now say anything they like. They have been through
the socialization system."

of those who exercise political and economic power. Newspapers,

"Media corporations function
like giant magnifying glasses that roam the world, highlighting
facts that benefit corporate-friendly parties, leaders, allied
states and voices. They also magnify facts that undermine and
harm corporate-unfriendly parties, leaders, groups and voices."

"Most Americans and Europeans
get most of their news from state-controlled television, under
the misconception that reporters are meant to serve the public.
In fact, reporters do not serve the public. Reporters are paid
employees and serve the media owners, whose company's shares are
traded on Wall Street."
Daniel Estulin, 2015
"The CIA continues to maintain
a close relationship with both mainstream and independent journalists.
This is critical to establishing and controlling the narrative
in each foreign "crisis." It is no accident that each
mainstream media outlet has the exact same perspective on events
like the Ukraine coup or the Venezuela attempted coup, or Hong
Kong protests. Part of this is the US "deep state" or
"national security state" and part of it is the increasing
integration of US corporate entities into the US government. Major
media outlets are owned by US corporations that also own weapons
manufacturing companies and cannot be trusted to report on events
objectively. Similarly, virtually every US mainstream media outlet
employs "former" members of the US intelligence community
to "explain" foreign events to their viewers."
